Abstract:
Fractures of the radial neck represent approximately 5-10% of all injuries of the elbow in children. Depending on the degree of radial head displacement, either an operative intervention or conservative treatment is recommended. The medical records of 168 children treated between 1999 and 2008 were analyzed and fractures were classified according to the Judet classification system. The fractures were treated according to an algorithm depending on age and fracture dislocation and 103 type I, 21 type II, 30 type III and 14 type VI fractures were found. Conservative treatment was possible in 124 patients and 44 were treated operatively. The overall outcome was good.
